Induction of lung and liver tumors by fluoranthene in a preweanling CD-1 mouse bioassay.


Fluoranthene (FA), a major environmental pollutant, induced lung and liver tumors 6-9 months after intraperitoneal injection of 0.7, 1.75 and 3.5 mg FA into preweanling CD-1 mice. There was a dose-dependent increase in lung tumors with a maximum tumor incidence of nearly 45% and a maximum tumor multiplicity of 0.6-0.7 lung tumors/mouse. No significant… (More)
